Hi cpyder, are you keeping track of FE figures based on full tank to full tank calculation, and comparing them with the tripmeter FE reading that the car computer displays? If yes, could you share those figures? What I am primarily interested in is the correction you have to apply to the tripmeter FE to get the actual FE. I have now started recording both these figures, and there is a difference of about 0.9 to 1.1 (e.g. if actual FE is 12 kmph, tripmeter shows 12.9 or 13.1). Only twice the actual FE was more than 2 less than the tripmeter reading, and both occasions, the petrol pump guy did not set it to auto-cut and filled it till it started overflowing. So once one knows this correction term, it should be possible to detect petrol pumps/attendants who cheat by weight/volume.

Thanks Ramsagar. As of now no plans on mods. Fog lamps came as accessory on extra payment of 12k.

Sigh! I had kept the fuel bills in the car itself. Unfortunately, before i could actually calculate the FE, someone labeled those as waste papers and trashed them. What I vaguely remember, it was about 35 Liters both times. From the data that I remember, it works out to 14 kmpl as of now, tripmeter showing 13. So, it seems to be higher in actual case. But as I said, its not concrete.

Great buy!

Spunky little engine for city driving. I somehow think it would have looked a little better were it not this long, but then that is of course it's USP.

Don't worry about the overpricing part, with a Honda you will most probably recover it through the low maintenance cost.

Congrats on the buy again! And awaiting more pics!

I remember us talking to a friend of ours who said, 'now that you have booked jazz, you will repent in years to come.' and our hearts sank. He continued 'the car would continue to perform without any niggles and you would not have an excuse to change it.'

As a Honda owner I second that statement.

BTW, Congrats !!! Drive safe

TIP : Always do the upholstery cleaning, wheel balancing & rotation works from a reputed non Honda service center, so that you can save some money.

Ah, being long (albeit slightly) is perhaps makes it just a little more palatable for its price, where you say that it is almost a sedan. But then, i20 is longer than Jazz. Where Jazz wins is the intelligent use of that small space and its design which makes it visually longer.

Guys, i am a little busy for next one week, so pics will take at least that much time. But they would be here for sure. I do not want to take some pic and post it here. They better convey what they should so that would take a little time.

I totally agree. When I bought my Honda City ZXi, I heard so many reviews from the non technical folk as well as from the qualified car fans that I was confused for a moment. One gentleman even went on to say that with me living in the congested quarter of Pune City the Honda City was a complete waste of 7.7 Lakhs I had paid for it. It was just an ego show on my part. (I returned his compliment with interest ) but now two years on I really feel that my decision at that time was justified. I love my car and I don't think it was overpriced at all
